At its June meeting, the Propane Education & Research Council voted to establish three advisory committees which will be responsible for working on the implementation of programs in its three mission areas-consumer education, safety and training, and research and development. Committee member nominations will be submitted to the Council at its next meeting, September 20-21 in Washington, D.C.

Each committee will consist of approximately 12 people. Anyone with knowledge and experience related to the following areas should submit their interest to serve in writing no later than September 3.
